Build a 2.4Ghz Helical Antenna

Although this helical antenna only has 3 turns it is portable and the performance, only slightly less than a 14 turn helical antenna.

Silly question perhaps, but why would I want a 2.4Ghz Helical Antenna? What possible use is it to me? Do you use it for Televisions? WiFI? Eat radioactive pot-noodles? <br> <br>
... Not that templates are bad or anything, and I'm sure the video gets the point across - but taking the time to write out an exhaustive step-by-step would help out a whole lot.
Sorry, I am not seeing a link to the template for the proper number of turns.
sorry i don't know what happened to it. i have just edited and put the link back into the description. <br>https://docs.google.com/file/d/0BzmJxxD-Z4B6ZjM0OC1ORVBpOVk/edit?usp=sharing <br>sorted now <br> <br>
